Uncle Allen was the definition of kind. As my great-uncle, he showed my brothers and I as much love as he would show his grandchildren. Our dinner dates to Fudrucker's with Aunt Claire will always be cherished, and how whenever I would see him, he would put his hand up for me to hold, and lean in and give him a kiss on the cheek. I know that Aaron, Joe and myself will miss him always, and we send love to Aunt Claire and our cousins who have lost such a dear Papa.

Claire and Family:
Thoughts and prayers go out to each of you from me and my entire family. You are not alone in your grief though you may not be physically surrounded by those of us who loved him and continue to love and support you. My memories of Al are of a strong family-oriented man who was kind-hearted, good-natured, smart and a loyal sports fan. He was a man who always showed great interest in the personal and professional well being of his family and friends. Each Passover dinner, and any other Horowitz family event we were blessed to join, Al always made a point of showing interest in me and my happiness. With time, your immediate pain may reside and your memories will comfort you. I know you will reflect on how special your time was with your husband, father, papa and two-papa. Love, Marc Lessem

There will never be anyone like my “uncle Al” as he was very special to me and my family. We all loved him dearly and he certainly will be missed but will always hold a very special place in my heart. My mom would always say and I totally agree that he was so very special and there’s no one like him. We all just loved him! My heartfelt sympathy to his wonderful family and with much love, Sheryl Schneider
